Many thanks to Patrick from hswalsh.com for supplying a superb microscope for the presentation, which delivered a very sharp image of the movement I was working on onto the large screen.
I was a bit apprehensive about putting balance jewels into a movement in front of an audience, but I managed not to drop any parts and make a complete fool of myself 😉
The movement was ticking nicely after about 40 minutes, including talking the audience through the function of the parts, lubrication, and taking ages to get the pallet fork bridge in…
There will also be an interview with BBC radio broadcast sometime next week, and I will put a sound file of that on the blog when I get it.
Now I am relaxing with a glass of wine, and feel that I deserved it.
